A Good Way to Start the Day!

You know it's gonna be a good day when you get a package like this in the mailbox.... I woke up early to walk and checked the mail on my way in... lookey lookey (I know that is not a word, but I like it) a package from Granna... This was great bribing material for me this morning. I told Hoot as soon as he dressed and brushed teeth hair etc... he could open "The Package". that's what we've come to call them... They usually arrive close to Halloween, Valentines Day and Easter... Hoot's favorite is Halloween because there is usually something creepy to be discovered inside... Hoot was dressed in record time and ready to open "The Package" before school. Granna delivered the goods once again... a ooeey gooey slimy finger... just in time for Halloween...
He can hardly stand the anticipation and wanted to open it before school... he had to wait until after school.. We do have nutritional breakfast standards around here!
Granna... he did ask... "where are the tattoos???"... HA HA ! The kiddo has a memory. Last year he got some wicked pirate/shark tattoos so he wondered where they were this year. I had to explain, each year it's a surprise... it won't be the same thing as last year...
Hoot looks forward to "The Package" each holiday and knows he is loved by his Granna and Papa in Indiana.


  1. How precious! My kids love getting mail. They ask almost every day if anything came for them. :)

  2. We thought he was probably tird of getting tattoos! Gota love that kid and love we do!
